2006 was the year that changed my life. In 2006, I was hanging out with my friend and we were just talking. Then, he told me about a game called Runescape - it was apparently the most popular thing at school. Not that I would know, I was homeschooled.
So he showed me the website, and helped me make an account (yes, he looked away for the password part).
Then, after 30 minutes of not knowing how to "Prospect" a rock on Tutorial Island, I was in! Prior to this day, I didn't even really know what a computer did. But ever since that day I've been pretty much addicted to Runescape. Eventually, this addiction led me to other parts of the internet. Then, my curiosity for things like websites, facebook, emails, all that fun stuff. I wanted to know how it all worked.
I started this website because, well, I love websites. I thought it was so fascinating you could claim a piece of the internet as your own, and do whatever you wanted with it. I started a few websites on Webs, and proceeded to learn more about making websites. Eventually, with the help of some friends, Runeaid was created. We ran Mybb, had no good theme, and no guides. But we pushed on, nothing was going to stop us. I remember the nights I would spend up until 6am sometimes, just doing what I love. Working on websites. With the help of some of the best people I've ever had the pleasure to work with, Brad, Rob, and Steve, we got this site off the ground and made it what it is.
The dedication from everyone on this website is astounding. All we worked for was the feeling of accomplishment of collaborating to run a website. None of us were paid. Every single penny donated went right back into the website. That, I promise.
Runeaid is the first stepping stone of my internet career. From here, I plan to major in Computer Science and continue doing websites whenever possible.
What about Runeaid? Well, now that Runeaid is officially supported by Jagex I want to work hard and do whatever it takes to let this website reach its full potential. So, as organized people unlike myself do, I've made a little check list.
- Run Community oriented events
- Host giveaways!
- Solidify Runeaid's presence on Twitter and Facebook (Youtube too?)
- Make guides!
- Help you, the community, on your Runescape endeavors. As others have helped me on mine.
This site is about helping people. Runescape has always had extremely friendly people who have helped me, and now I'm helping you. After all, we are Runeaid
So, if there is anything we aren't doing now that you think we should, join the forums and tell us. If you would like to show your support, join the forums and post. If not, keep browsing our guides and utilizing Runeaid to make your account the best it can be. After all, that's what we're here for.
Thanks to everyone who has ever participated and helped the website, you guys are the best.
